the fight is between B and E. and B wins. E lost lost because the comparison is between the protein of rice and wheat.

This part is an initial modifier

In addition to having more protein than wheat does, ---- it refers to the next noun.
If you put the word "protein" right after it, you are saying that "the protein [in addition to having more protein than wheat does]" <--this is not correct : it's logically flawed.

Who/what has more protein than wheat ? the rice. Hence the word rice should follow that modifier.

Hope it's clear

COMPARE '

besides english , I learn French

having good spirit, I learn gmat

in having good spirit, I learn gmat

the first is prepositional phrase, which dose not need to refer to subject of main clause

the second is participle phrase, which refer to subject of main clause.

the third is participle phrase with preposition, which, similar to participle phrase,refers to the subject of main clause.

this sc problem is the case 3

this problem is still a text book knowlege which requires us to read the grammar textbook again

A,C and D out because modifier needs to modify rice, which is the case in B & E. E is awkward because it says "a protein". So B is the answer.

I choose option B.

In addition to having more protein -than wheat does, the protein in rice is higher quality than that in wheat,with more of the amino acids essential to the human diet.

(A) the protein in rice is higher quality than that in --> removed right away
(B) rice has protein of higher quality than that in --> Correct!
(C) the protein in rice is higher in quality than it is in --> removed right away
(D) rice protein is higher in quality than it is in --> we want the sentence to continue the pattern of the product "having" protein
(E) rice has a protein higher in quality than --> rice doesn't have "a" protein; eliminated
